In the 1970 grand prix season, Ake had his second big chance to win the world championship crown. This year he had bad luck too just like in 1968, he had the points average when getting into the last round of the season.

 

But in the first moto of the last race, he got run over by another rider when the gate dropped, wich caused a punctured fuel tank and later in the race a DNF – due to lack of fuel.

 

Below: Ake in action on the fast 400cc Maico in Namur, Belgium.
